Apologetics 301 Guidelines

If you think this is the area where you tell everyone you are sorry for eating their lunch out of the fridge, it probably isn't the place for you


This forum is open discussion between atheists and all theists to defend and debate their views on religion or non-religion. Please respect that this is a Christian-owned forum and refrain from gratuitous blasphemy. VERY wide leeway is given in range of expression and allowable behavior as compared to other areas of the forum, and moderation is not overly involved unless necessary. Please keep this in mind. Atheists who wish to interact with theists in a way that does not seek to undermine theistic faith may participate in the World Religions Department. Non-debate question and answers and mild and less confrontational discussions can take place in General Theistics.

    That was going around Facebook this week. I cannot count myself as a Billy Graham fan, for this sort of reason. The very phase, "everybody that loves or knows Christ, whether they are conscious of it or not..." strikes me as self-contradictory; I do not even know what it means to know something that I am never conscious of. Certainly God is calling people out of the Muslim world or the Buddhist world. The operative word there is out; that is, they are no longer of those worlds once they belong to Christ, even if they stay physically in those worlds. An inner sense of "needing something that you don't have" sounds like preparation evangelium rather than the sort of faith in Christ of which the Bible speaks.
    So would your answer be 'yes' to my two questions?
    βλέπομεν γὰρ ἄρτι δι᾿ ἐσόπτρου ἐν αἰνίγματι, τότε δὲ πρόσωπον πρὸς πρόσωπον
    ἄρτι γινώσκω ἐκ μέρους, τότε δὲ ἐπιγνώσομαι καθὼς καὶ ἐπεγνώσθην.

    אָכֵ֕ן אַתָּ֖ה אֵ֣ל מִסְתַּתֵּ֑ר אֱלֹהֵ֥י יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל מוֹשִֽׁיעַ׃
